1 WAS*IS*WILLBE 1 1 Weather Integrated in Living Laboratories to Build Effectiveness… okay, I know it’s hokey

2 Major challenge for science… the widening gap between the advance of science and society’s ability to benefit We must integrate: Physical/natural science and social science, and Science and practice

3 An example…

4 Why, despite the fact that we know so much more about the natural and social causes of disasters, do losses continue to mount?

5 White, Kates, and Burton 2001 * we haven't learned as much as we think knowledge is available but unused knowledge is used ineffectively, and/or growth in costs may reflect a time lag between the acquisition of new understanding and when it can be put into practice. *White, GF, et al. (2001), ‘Knowing better and losing even more: the use of knowledge in hazards management,’ Environmental Hazards, (3)

6 …learning from experience

7 Learning from experience… …continued

8 To reduce actual losses will require more attention to social science tie-in to practitioners tie-in to the private sector fleshing out the international piece progress on policy
